a story that's eerily similar to the sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time it's paul ryan whose future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly assuming that they are about to lose and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. publically ryan and allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket, but his biggest boosters realize he can write his own ticket. these allies spoke on the condition to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a white house contender in 2016 just like sarah palin was in 2012. for the next few years, democrats would lay traps forcing them to take sides on measures to come back to haunt him. that's why ryan's biggest boosters are considering why it wouldn't be better for paul ryan to resign from the house. he could write a book. or he could teach at a university. days before the election, paul ryan's supporters are leaking their plans to the press for what they want paul ryan to do since he's not

republicans. this is a title but it's a lot of attention and thanks to mitt romney and paul ryan and got a lot of attention they literally rush to google after watching the convention and what's the matter with white people. so i want to think sam. [applause] but, you know, a lot of the commentary focused on the nostalgia republicans seem to feel for the golden age. as i describe in my title, and we can say that that is racism or sexism and some of it no doubt is. but i think it's important for us as progressives, those of us here that are progressive i hope we have some republicans, too. i think it's important to think about the golden age was and that there was a golden age for some americans and it coincided with my growing up. i felt like i was the last generation of people to whom the country really kept its promises. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and wor

're saying is exactly right. he picked paul ryan as vice presidential nominee who's basically against pro choice and also against gay rights and defending medicare. i mean, this is who mitt romney is. he can't get away from that. >> let's not even go there. let me play to you what mitt romney said regarding roe versus wade. >> there we go. >> i hope to appoint justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution. it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade. >> that would be my preference that they reverse roe versus wade. you play that and you show what coleman just said on his behalf. come o we're not talking about friends. we're talking about moderate mitt himself. >> it's not even moderate mitt. what is happening is he's basically -- you're right. he has his own words to be used against him but also disingenuous when senator coleman was saying what bush did for the supreme court. it's a gradual term. three supreme court justices are in their mid-70s, one in questionable health, you just need to appoint one to the supreme court and roe versus wade will
started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we have two new nbc wall street marist polls out for you. president obama holds a 6-point lead among likely voters in ohio. 51 to 45%. then in the sunshine state the president gets support of 49% from likely voters. mitt romney coming in with 47%. let's head to mentor, ohio where the president is holding a campaign stop. we're following very closely with nbc's chris janzen's help. chris a good day to you. let's get to what the president is saying in his final pitch to the ohio voters. why is he there in mentor, specifically? >> reporter: good afternoon, alex. there is one group, one reason why the president is here. he's white work class voters. it's a group where the president has been behind nationally, having a tough time getting to 40%. but it's closette here closest . five points separated him and mitt romney in working class voters. take a look at the statistics in mentor. i know this very well. i grew u

. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's play it. >> mitt romney's favorable, unfavorable is still upside down in iowa, not in new hampshire or wisconsin. iowa is still maintaining that pattern that we've seen a lot this fall. so it hasn't moved for him. the other thing is iowa is a huge early voting state. and i think if the story of this election ends up being the re-election, if it does of president obama, it's going to be all about the early voti
mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan are talking about in economic policy, if you believe what they're saying at any given moment, would take us back to that era when business and wall street had a free hand and workers had no rights, their bosses were bound to respect. it was the preunion era when you had robber barronsons running ram hant over the rest of the country. mitt romney would return the country to an era when the balance of power was held by very large businesses in wall street and not by their employees. that said, if the economist and michael bloomberg have one thing in common, it's like they know how to do math. mitt romney's promises don't add up because his real business it turns out is marketing. he's microtargeting a message to whatever audience is in front of him at that very moment and then telling the next audience sometimes the opposite. it does depend on whether you believe, look, if he was still the 2003 or the 1990s era romney, bloomberg said he might have joted for him but this guy has change sod many times because he's constantly in the business of t
